I’m invested in portraying the figures I paint in a way that is honest to my perspective as a female. I find myself creating myths around a cast of characters playing in a story of kinship, affinity, intimacy, exploration, and turbulence. I intend to invoke a familiarity and sentimentality by displaying the idiosyncrasies of the ensemble I am painting.
